One of the main perks about the Model Program is that you get to decide which videos you want to upload and how you want to monetize them! Whether you want to make your video free-to-stream, pay-to-download, for-sale, or Premium, there’s always a way to make moolah from it.
Here’s a Crash Course on all the different ways you can earn money from Pornhub's Model Program
- Videos Free to Stream on Pornhub – Ad Reveue
If you make your video available to stream for free on Pornhub, we pay you 80%+ of the ad revenue that your video earns based on views. The ad rate is based on the performance of the ads around your video (like clicks and sales). The average rate per 1000 views for 2019 was $0.60.
- Videos Free to Stream PLUS Option to Download – Ad Revenue and % of Sales
If you decided to make your video free to stream on Pornhub and earn from ad revenue, you also have the option to add a price users have to pay to download your video. They can pay to download the video on both Pornhub and Modelhub. You set the price and get 65% of each sale (80% minus 15% processing fee).
- Videos for Sale on Modelhub - % of Sales
If your video is set as for sale under "privacy" during the upload process, users must purchase your video in order to watch and download it, both on Pornhub under your paid videos and Modelhub. You set the price and get 65% of each sale (80% minus 15% processing fee).
- Videos for Sale on Modelhub AND on Pornhub Premium - % of Sales and Viewshare RPM
On top of selling your video on Pornhub and Modelhub and making 65% of each sale, you could also make it available to stream for free on Pornhub Premium to members only. The average RPM in 2019 was $35.58 per 1000 views. Premium members also have the option to download your video, but at a price that you set, and you’ll earn 65% of sales.
- Fan Club on Modelhub
If you decide to enable your Fan Club, you choose what to include, from videos to photos to prioritized messaging to discounts and so much more. These extras would only be available to your Fan Club members who are paying the monthly membership that you set. It can be anywhere between $0.99 and $99 a month, and you get 80% of all your Fan Club subscription revenue. Click here on how to set it up.
- Custom Videos on Modelhub
You can also allow fans to make custom video requests and like other video sales on Modelhub, keep 65% of the revenue (80% minus 15% processing fee). Once again, you choose what you want to include in the video and how much you want to charge for every single detail from the quality to the acts to the clothes to the length. Click here on how to set it up.
- Tips on Pornhub and Modelhub
Once you sign up for the Pornhub Model Program, there will be a big tip button on both your Pornhub and Modelhub profile pages. So be sure to encourage your fans to tip you — you get to keep 80% of your tips (95% - 15% processing fee). You won’t see the tip button on your own account when you’re logged in, but users will!
Video Trailers for For-Sale Videos
One way to encourage viewers to check out and buy your for-sale videos is to give them a tease and upload a trailer. So when someone views the trailer you’ve set up, an ad for the full-length video will appear underneath. Viewers can then click on it and be redirected to the for-sale version. Since the trailer will be treated like a free-to-stream video, you'll earn ad revenue on it, however, you’ll make up to 30% less on this specific trailer video because we’ll be giving you a space to advertise your for-sale video.

How to Earn an Extra 5%
If you decide to opt-in for Exclusivity, on top of benefiting from our fully-automated copyright protection service, we also offer a 5% payout increase for your free-to-stream videos on Pornhub. Click here for more info on Exclusivity.
Promote your Content with a Coupon Campaign
One way you could boost your views and grow your fan base is to create your own campaign, promote it on your social channels, and offer fans a discount. Under your Coupon Manager tab, you can create a name, decide on the discount you want to offer and the number of times it can used, and select your start and end date or whether you want it to be ongoing. This is a great tool to use to encourage users to check out your page. We’ll also be adding more coupon tools and features in the future, so stay tuned and click here for more details on how to set it up!
